Unless it's the case of 2 men with the same name, the name Samer Souad is/was an infamous smuggler who became particularly wealthy from fuel smuggling & black market trading in #Idlib.

Initially linked to Jamal Maarouf, some claimed he was linked to #HTS in recent years.
In addition to Samer Souad, locals also claim influential #HTS commander Abdulqader Tahhan (aka Abu Bilal Qadas) was at the targeted location outside #Salqin.

Qadas was given responsibility for Jisr al-Shughour security, following #HTS's recent crackdown on #AlQaeda loyalists.
Here's an image of the late-night meeting held in Jakara outside #Salqin -- reportedly convening #HTS security officials with other local notables.

Casualties likely to be more than the initially cited "2." Image

3/15 Later there were some other #Kurdish sources (e.g. Hawar News Agency @enhawarnews) claiming the same. On Sep 22nd, few days prior to war, @LindseySnell, a prominent journalist published a photo supposedly with #Hamza group militants, in a plane arriving to #Baku via #Ankara.

The 1973 War is a microcosm of the dysfunctional 'leadership' of Sadat and Assad.

The #Syrian and #Egyptian armies coordinated surprise attacks on #Israel that were initially quite successful. The separate offensives captured important territory with minimal losses. However,...
their success was undermined by their respective presidents.When Hafez' troops seized strategic posts in the occupied Golan Heights, they managed to catch #Israel's defences off guard. One of its major highways was unguarded, enabling the Syrian Armed Forces to advance unopposed.
Though Hafez' generals urged him to continue the offensive, he forced them to remain at the captured base, claiming that it would give them time to 'regroup.'

However, former officers have since 1973 stated that he was uninterested in leading a real offensive.

No shortage of “theory” is invoked to justify and legitimize torture. Everything can be employed in the service of the racist scriptures: modernity; secularism; the War on Terror; even anti-imperialism…
It happens that #Syria, was a torture state for decades before it became a major theater of the War on Terror, in which so many of the world’s crime agencies have demonstrated their skill by joining this torturous war; “Chemical” #Assad leading their way…
After the Syrian uprising began in March 2011, Assad’s regime abolished the state of emergency that had been in effect in the country since the Baathist coup of March 1963, only to replace it with laws of “combating terror,” moving from one form a state of exception to another.

Who is #IRGC and what is it's mission?
In this video, we want to take a look at some terrorist activities of #IRGC in the world.
#IRGCTerrorWithoutBorders #NoImpunity4Mullahs #Iran @usadarfarsi @StateDept @statedeptspox @SecPompeo @realDonaldTrump @USUN @GermanyDiplo
Below is the history of IRGC.
#IRGC created by #Khomeini in 1979 is an #Iranian government agency tasked with defending the regime against internal and external threats. Espousing a radical ideology and a paranoid worldview.
#IRGCTerrorWithoutBorders #NoImpunity4Mullahs #Iran
#IRGC uses secret #police methods against its opponents within #Iran, and terrorist tactics against its enemies abroad.
The IRGC creates, trains, funds, arms, and deploys forces with thousands of fighters beyond Iran’s borders.

1. The dersiking practices by banks, financial institutions, and crowdfunding platforms like @gofundme have been for long hurting the civilians in #Syria (and other countries), denying them humanitarian aid, food and medicine and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths @CNN @hrw
2. For example @gofundme have been blocking fundraising campaigns by NGOs like @MedGlobalOrg to raise funds to purchase life-saving medicine, medical supplies and Oxygen for #COVID19 patients in #Syria where COVID is causing tens of thousands of infections and deaths
3. They use the execuse of sanctions against war criminals in Syria, although the @USTreasury has clearly stated that humanitarian assistance to civilians is exempted from sanctions @deborahamos @secupp @clarissaward @arwaCNN @Charles_Lister @AndersonCoopCNN @P4HR @SafeguardingHC

#Israel has offered #Lebanon humanitarian and medical aid. Unfortunately the Lebanese government did not react.This was to be expected as the offer came from an enemy. On Twitter and other social media I saw a lot of very cynical and negative comments about 1/
the „horrible“ Israelis and their fraudulent offer. This is really sad. Many years ago I made a film about the field hospital Israel has set up on the Golan helping #Syrian civilians who were victims of the civil war there. The Israeli doctors saved lives, made operations. 2/
These Syrian civilians were very thankful. And between the Israeli medical staff and those people human, personal bonds were developed. Beyond politics! We all know that we cannot trust politics. So what is left if you want to develop some kind of understanding and trust? 3/

A thread on #Tuberculosis among #Syrian prisoners
1. The association between prisons and tuberculosis is long established and there are more than 118 000 prisoners and detainees in Syria.
2. Harsh conditions including severe overcrowding, torture, and malnutrition have been described. Tuberculosis is reported to be among the leading causes of mortality in Aleppo Central Prison, accounting for more than 25% of 400 fatalities between April, 2012, and October, 2013.
3. Medications, including antituberculosis therapy, often do not reach prisoners; of greater concern is the possibility that intermittent or suboptimal dosing does reach prisoners, increasing the risk of drug-resistant tuberculosi

Wall outside #Damascus with Banksy style graffiti depicting #Syrian girl resisting against Caesar. #Caesar_law is another in long line of criminal, sado-barbaric measures taken against Syrian people by US Coalition of terror, based on Qatar-commissioned distortion. Image
"the investigation was financed by the government of Qatar which is a major supporter of the armed opposition."…
"The accusations by ‘Caesar’, the Carter Ruck report and HRW that these are all victims of “death in detention” or “death by torture” or death in ‘government custody” are almost certainly false."…

My friend and fellow colleague at Alrai, Eliya, who usually reports on Hezbollah's point of view accurately, says that #Lebanese hunger encourages war against #Israel.…
Sounds like a veiled threat, which Nasrallah also voiced in his speech, when he said "if you make us choose between surrendering our arms and hunger, we will not go hungry and we'll kill you."
In the early days of the #Syrian revolution, Assad's cousin Makhlouf told US media that the collapse of the Assad regime will unleash chaos on Israel. This is the same pattern, whenever things go bad, threaten Israel.

Sharing with you a #Syrian awe-inspiring day of hope.

Since yesterday, I’ve been overwhelmed with hope. The brave Syrian revolutionaries are protesting, once again, against the Assad state, in areas still occupied by the #Assad-#Russia-#Iran alliance, in Swaida and #Daraa. 1/9
The revolutionaries in #Idlib also took to the streets in support of them, and protested against Al-#Qaeda fascism. Their voices, their free, heroic, and fearless voices, have swept me off my feet. 2/9
The same low-quality videos. The same breathtaking atmosphere of standing up against the bloodthirsty butchers of our land. The same sharp, uncompromisable ideals. 3/9
